Is yoga really beneficial for the mental state?

Physical and Psychological Benefits of Practicing Yoga

Mental benefits for the mind

1. Fights depression

It is said that regularly sitting in the lotus position (with legs crossed and feet on opposite thighs) increases the release of serotin (the happiness hormone).

In fact, one study has confirmed that people who practice yoga have a higher function in their prefrontal cortex in the brain, which is directly linked to happiness.

2. You stay relaxed

When practicing yoga, it is important to slow your breath. In doing this, you are moving away from the fight or flight response and into the parasympathetic nervous system. This makes us feel calmer, it lowers our heartbeat, increases blood flow and reduces the feeling of tension and overwhelming.

In addition, the Enjoy herbal drops are a completely natural, plant-based remedy that combats feelings of stress and tension. It also helps reduce mood swings and brings joy and relaxation.

3. Stabilizes the mood

Practicing yoga is our very own natural mood stabilizer as it reduces the major mood swings - such as fear, frustration, anger, and stress. And when you consider that stress is a great supporter of many serious illnesses, yoga is therefore able to calm the mind and strengthen the physical health of the body.

4. Boosts self-confidence

If you really do yoga and understand the activity at all levels, you will feel more in tune with your body and mind. In this way, you experience more positive emotions like gratitude, empathy, and forgiveness. Yoga allows you to feel more connected not only to yourself, but also to something bigger, and an added bonus is that anyone can practice yoga anywhere!
